GM, UAW agree on tentative labor contract that could end a monthlong strike by 48,000 workers
Details of the agreement are not yet available, but the most recent GM offer included investment worth $7.7 billion in US plants and guarantees to hire temporary workers into full-time positions, according to sources who spoke to Automotive News and Reuters.
“The number one priority of the national negotiation team has been to secure a strong and fair contract that our members deserve,” said Terry Dittes, UAW Vice President, Director of the UAW GM Department, in a statement. “Out of respect for our members, we will refrain from commenting on the details until the UAW GM leaders gather together and receive all details.”
Members of the UAW are expected to hold ratification votes in the coming weeks. If members ratify the deal, negotiations will move on to either Ford or FCA.
